Let me get this straight, in 2006 the left went ballistic over the revelation that the Bush Administration was using computers to track phone numbers (of calls made to and from suspected terrorists). It was the end of the America as we knew it, and the Bush Administration was destroying the Fourth Amendment.
There were comments like these from Democrat politicians: “Are you telling me tens of millions of Americans are involved with al-Qaeda?” and “These are tens of millions of Americans who are not suspected of anything.”
But now, seeing that Americans (and their kids) must subject themselves to groping and/or fondling in order to board a plane, the left is eerily silent on the Obama Administration’s apathy towards the Fourth Amendment and everyone’s ‘right’ to privacy. Nah, there’s no invasion of privacy here, move along move along. If Bush had implemented similar TSA procedures, the left would’ve been screaming from the rooftops about government fascism and Bushitler.
How much is the left willing to let the current administration get away with before speaking out against it? How are they going to spin this one? Let me guess… “The TSA is simply implementing the first steps of Obamacare. Now you don’t need to get a physical if you’ve been through a TSA checkpoint! They are just trying to kill two birds with one stone. See how efficient they are!”
